Brooklyn Park and Brooklyn Center police departments are teaming up to have an open dialogue with the public. The police chiefs from both cities will lead two forums titled "Community and Police Conversations." The goal is to answer questions from the people they serve. "The first step to gaining trust is honesty, is knowing people, whether it be the chief or the officers responding to calls, knowing they're going to get an honest response from us," said Brooklyn Center Police Chief Tim Gannon. Gannon said there was concern in the two Brooklyns about connecting with citizens. "We're hoping to just have a meeting here in Brooklyn Park and a meeting in Brooklyn Center and address all these concerns and questions," said Brooklyn Park Chief Craig Enevoldsen. Brooklyn Park residents can go to the city's Facebook page and submit questions ahead of Wednesday's meeting. The top three questions will be answered at the forum. Both police chiefs say in order to change community and police relations, everyone is going to have to work together. "We can change our policies and practices to make the community happy or address their concerns, but I think as a community we need to work on the issues, not just a police issue," said Enevoldsen. The first conversation takes place Wednesday at 6:30 p.m at Park Center High School. There will be another question and answer session with police on Saturday, Nov. 5, at Brooklyn Center High School.
